Horsell Road


The Horsell Rd project involved replacing the rotten timber decking and soffits that were so badly deteriorated that they were at risk of falling and causing serious injury. To ensure safety and longevity, ALU Installations installed a fully non-combustible Alideck solution, offering both visual appeal and longevity. The soffits not only serve as a decorative element but also play a crucial role as an effective water management system, diverting water to the front of the balcony and discharging it away from the balcony below.

Decking Installation

To replace the rotten timber decking, ALU Installations utilized a non-combustible Alideck solution. This advanced material ensures longevity and resistance against the elements, including water, UV rays, and decay. The Alideck solution was meticulously installed, ensuring a seamless finish and a solid structure.

Soffit Design

In addition to enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the balcony, the soffits serve as an effective water management system. By doubling up as a drainage system, they effectively divert water to the front of the balcony, preventing it from accumulating and causing damage. Additionally, the soffits are designed with drainage channels that direct the water away from the balcony below, preventing any potential structural issues or water damage.

Safety Measures

The primary concern of the Horsell Rd project was to ensure the safety of the occupants and passersby. By replacing the rotten timber decking and soffits with a non-combustible Alideck solution, the risk of accidents due to falling debris is minimized. Additionally, the soffits’ water management system helps prevent the accumulation of water, reducing the risk of slips and falls.

Long-Term Durability

The Horsell Rd project aimed to provide a long-term solution, both in terms of durability and aesthetics. The Alideck solution offers superior longevity compared to timber, ensuring years of maintenance free use. The soffits’ water management system further contributes to the project’s durability by efficiently diverting water away from the balcony, preventing any potential damage.


The Horsell Rd project exemplifies the commitment to quality and customer satisfaction that ALU Installations strives for. By replacing the rotten timber decking and soffits with a fully non-combustible Alideck solution, the project not only ensures safety but also enhances the visual appeal of the balcony. The soffits’ dual role as a decorative element and water management system further enhances the functionality of the space, reducing the risk of water damage and creating a safer and more functional environment.
